No Going Back was incubated within the prison charity Bounce Back and after 3 successful years it is now independent. 

In June 2020 the Livery Companies began a groundbreaking collaboration to reduce re-offending. They selected the prison charity Bounce Back as the delivery partner to launch and incubate the No Going Back programme.

3 years on, with nearly 40 participating Livery Companies and over 150 volunteers supporting NGB, plus over 2,000 participants that have in some way benefited along the rehabilitation journey, the time came for it to be independent with its respected track record.

In July 2023 NGB departed from Bounce Back to stand alone with its valued caseworkers and volunteer manager as well as the outstanding Ambassadors who will all be helping to support people from prison into employment.

We continue to work with Bounce Back and all of the other organisations, corporates and employers as we reach new heights.

The programme has evolved as it has progressed and it now includes KANGAROO, a holistic assessment tool in partnership with City & Guilds which offers additional partner modules to prepare candidates for taking the leap on to the programme. Ultimately No Going Back aims to reduce re-offending and save some of the £18bn its costs the taxpayer.
